Pre-Professional Ballet Programs: Junior & Senior Companies

Central Utah Ballet has created a pre-professional ballet program to simulate a college and professional ballet experience. Each student will train in classical ballet technique, contemporary, modern, flamenco, character, classical ballet repertoire, learn vintage re-staged classical ballets, experience the creative process of diverse choreographers and perform in live performances.

Dancers will work directly with Artistic Director, Jennie Creer-King, as well as national and internationally recognized instructors from Utah and across the country.

Dancers will be chosen by audition and be placed in either the Junior Company or Senior Company. Each of these companies consists of a cluster of classes designed to polish and expand the students’ techniques and skills. These companies will have combined performances with Central Utah Ballet Studio dancers as well as separate performance experiences.
